See Where Your Taxes Are Going?

Sorry, this little piece of news is not going to bring joy to you today, but I thought you'd still like to know where some of your taxes are going.
I find it unbelievable that a $65 million project will only hold
2,000 illegal immigrants.

And this project represents only a small portion of the amenities
reserved to hold illegal immigrants.

Unbelievable! I'm shaking my head!

Well, putting people in a prison is expensive.

The other option is accepting that they're very motivated, so motivated to leave thgeir own family and country and start a new life.
Their motivation will give them the energy to work hard for a living, bring in loads of taxes, and beocme good citizens.
They won't cost, and they probably will do the jobs other people don't want to do.

In our country the same happened in the sixties, seventies, and eighties.

Now we've lost our humanity.

I'm ashamed about how we treat other people in this world.

Sorry if it's offending, but it's how I feel.

frankly i should not be spending my taxes on people who are not even part of our country yet. in fact we could be spending our taxes on helping the first responders on 9/11 since they're dying from lung disease. i know that your response is your opinion but i find it highly annoying that you're concerned about what we think of other countries...

$65,000,000 to house 2,000 seems a bit disproportional.

It would be in Texas. Actually those tents look better than some of the trailers for the Katrina people. The tents are probably better housing than the immigrants have at home. Maybe we need a shuttle and revolving door? Oh wait. we have no door, that's why they keep coming.

I bet the $65 million just gets the faciliaty open. No telling how many millions per year it will burn to house those 2,000 people.

That sounds like a lot.
What does that come out to? Just over 30k to house one person.
But then they have to also build the facilities to house the guards with the same money.So it may not be too bad after all then if you take that into consideration.
And of course that doesn't mean that they will have to spend the same amount to house the next two thousand.

And it's a shame that all of their motivation doesn't give them the energy to fix their own country.
